Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare brownie batter according to package directions; stir in peanut butter chips.

This was a huge hit at our family bbq. I did make my own homemade brownies and it turned out great!

What a hit this is. Have made it three times since I first saw the recipe. My son is always looking for this when he comes home to visit.

I prefer to make things as "homemade" as possible, so I used Taste of homes "Very Chocolate Brownie" recipe, omitting the icing obviously and adding the peanut butter chips instead of nuts. This is a very delicious, quick recipe for brownies, and the icing is awesome if you go that way. I also use real whipped cream instead of Cool Whip. 8 oz of Cool Whip yields 3 cups of whipped cream. Made this for a party and it was a huge hit! One time i even used chocolate muffins because of a time crunch, it was still great!

This is a HUGE recipe, so half is plenty, but a punch bowl is the perfect size for a full recipe.

I made this for a dear friend of mine who is a Reese's lover. He absolutely loved it. I made four individual trifles. They presented beautifully; each one with its own unique design. As many have said, it is very rich, but absolutely scrumptious! I followed the recipe to a "T" and wouldn't change one thing...a definite crowd pleaser!
